Flex2COM IoT-Gateway

Powerful industrial communication

Flex2COM is a gateway for industrial Ethernet communication in real-time. The gateway provides a mature solution for multi-protocol Fieldbus communication based on the Renesas RZ/N1D heterogeneous multi-core processor.

The operating system Linux Yocto is available for the SBC-RZN1D. Complete the SBC with a casing. More information on this solution: Flex2COM IoT Gateway

High performance with low power consumption

The integrated R-IN Engine subsystem of the RZ/N1D stands for Renesas Industrial Network Controller. It was developed for the requirements of Industry 4.0. It consists of a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M3 RISC CPU with 2 MB RAM, a Gigabit Ethernet MAC (GMAC), and an RTOS accelerator HW-RTOS. This concept enables high speed and real-time with low power consumption. The R-IN Engine is supplemented by a 5-port Ethernet switch and slave controller for Sercos III and EtherCAT for industrial multi-protocol communication.

Support of various protocols

Flex2COM offers the user two 100 Mbit interfaces for industrial Ethernet protocols such as EtherCAT, Profinet CCB RT1, EtherNet /IP, or Sercos III. In addition, there are two 1 Gbit interfaces for TCP/IP communication, two CAN 2.0B interfaces with CANopen support, and three UART interfaces.

Flexible choice of operating

Flex2COM is optimized for Linux Yocto. If required, it supports Linux Debian.
